fcplendUl Imported Ilorsen.--A Pre
mium Lot.
One of the most widely known farmers in
La Salle county is Mr. Alfred Bornard, a
cititen for over forty-four years of Serena.
He came from Franco in 1812, and located a
mile and a half northeast of the subsequent
ly built village of Serena. Here is his 200
acres of farm, well improved, anil stocked
with about 50 pure Poland China hogs, fine
cattle and, lastly and chiefly, as fine a lot of
Percheron horses as have ever been imported
from France into this country. He and
his eldest son, E. Bernard, visited France
last year, and brought over several head of
fine young horses of this famous breed,
among which was the beautiful horse Louts,
No. 2430, 17 hands high, weight 2,000 lbs.,
coal black, and of wonderful activity and
grace. Another, imported in 1882, was
Brilliant, 16 hands high, weight 1(50 lbs.,
largo bone und muscle. Both of these fine
horses are yet in his stud. This summer
Mr. Bernard went to France for a big lot,
and he determined to buy the very best
ytun() 1'ercheTon horses that money could
procure. Being a Frenchman born, and
speaking that language, he was not hamper
ed by a deceitful interpreter, nor subject to
the cupidity of that well known set of leech
es who bleed Americans front foO to $100 on
a single horse ! Taking his time, he jour
neyed frtim the stables of one extensive
horse breeder to another and from place to
place, until he obtained what ho wanted.
About ten days ago he arrived in Serena,
with a splendid outfit, as follows, all under
3, and most only 2 years :

No. 18. Sucking colt, boru April 17 this
year, named Violet ; a little beauty ; sire,
I'henbus, 329 ; dam, Charmante, 7080.
This completes a hasty sketch of the lot,
but it was necessarily brief, as our time was
short, and besides none but an experienced
horse fancier could sum up their good points,
aud then it might require days of study of
the peculiarities of each animal. This is a
splendid lot of pure-blooded Perchcrons. of
unquestioned pedigree, and will be sold at
as low rates as the same 'he best quality of
Percheron horses can be had anywhere in
this state.

The Fauioua Carriage, Huggy and Itoad
Cart Maker.
No manufacturing ei-tablishment in Otta
wa has a wider reputation than that of Gay
& Sons. Mr. Gay himself acquired a good
name years ago as a carriage and buggy
maker, whose name on a buggy or carriage
was a sufficient guarantee of every desirable
quality of the vehicle. But of later years
his sons have coma into roan's estate, and
joining young blood and youthful ambition
with his large experience and great skill,
the firm boomed wonderfully. A few years
ago they entered upon the manufacturing of
their famous road cart, pronounced by all
odds the very best, seemingly the perfection
of this variety of vehicle. They have since
the very first, which was a wonderful suc
cess, added a number of improvements made
and patented by themselves, and so brought
the Gay road carl to the front anl fur ahead
of all competitors. They make, also, the
celebrated "Torson spring," side bar bug
gies. A large number of these have been
sold and are pronounced the easiest riding
buggy ever made.
The trade of this firm in family carriages,
buggies and road carts extends all over the
Union, scarcely a state or county in which
numbers of these tine vehicles are not ex
tensivety used.
As winter is approaching, the firm desire
to engage extensively in making sleds nnd
cutters, so they need room and will sell car
riages, buggits, etc., at reduced rates, and
offer bargains accordingly.

In (he city council the Mayor suggested
a needed reform in tho mailer of miscellane
ous bill posiing, the abominable custom of
plastering all sorts of handbills on the wall
of buildings, on the painted bridges, and on
every other conceivable surface, no matter
how new, clean or nicely painted. The nui
sance ought to be stopped.
A singular custom, by the way, prevails in
Ottawa, which is, wo believe, almost entirely
unknow n elsewhere : that of posting printed
advertisements of funerals. It probably
had its origin in the days prior to the ap.
pearance of a daily paper here, when notice
of a funeral of some prominent citizen could
be made in no other way. Even la such
case some people might question the good
taste of the fact ; but the custom having
thus had a beginning, it has been almost
universally followed here since. Out sor
row of this nature is of so peculiarly a pri.
vate character that it does seem strange to
one not familiar with the custom, that it is
necessary to give further publicity than that
obtained through the press. And how awful
does the invitation to a funerU read weeks,
may be, after the event, when the wind an 1
ihe nin have defaced it, forcing to mini
